Voladores

We visited the town of Tlaquepaque on Saturday, which is just around a 30 minute drive from our house. The area is very tourist-friendly and features several pedestrian-only streets, complete with plenty of fancy shops and restaurants, as well as a beautiful central plaza.

When we arrived at the central plaza, the voladores were just about start their descent. The men had climbed the pole and were waiting to launch themselves. It was an impressive sight.
